Coordinated by the Purchasing Services Department, the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board supports the effective and efficient provision of products and services required to deliver quality education to students through ethical, professional and accountable sourcing, purchasing/supply chain and contracting activities.
Purchasing and Project Management coordinate the acquisition of all goods and services requirements according to Board policy (BA-5.1) and Regulations (BA-5.1.1, A, B, C, D) which are aligned with the Broader Public Sector Procurement Directive of the Ministry of Government & Consumer Services (MGCS). Bid opportunities for the provision of goods and services are advertised by electronic means in accordance with Board Policy. In order to ensure as many competitive bid opportunities reach the broadest vendor base possible, the Board advertises and posts bid documents and conducts the bid process electronically through an online website, Bids and Tenders, located at kprdsb.bidsandtenders.ca
All Board acquisitions exceeding $100,000 must be attained through a formal competitive bid process and will be advertised through the Bids and Tenders website noted above. It is the responsibility of parties interested in bid opportunities to check this website regularly or register so that opportunities are provided to them based on their profile.
